|The Performing Arts Center produces a wide variety of programs for the citizens of Cookeville. One of which is the annual Shakespeare in the Park production in Dogwood Park at the Pavilion. The series is produced by staff of the performing arts center and volunteers. Actors for the production are local citizens. Shakespeare in the Park began as an endeavor to provide theatre to non-traditional audiences in an open air environment that allowed the audience to come and go. Since its inception, patrons who would not normally attend productions in a traditional setting have been able to enjoy high quality theatre. It is especially convenient for those with small children, animals, or those who may be economically challenged. Shows are free.|
